AN APPEAL FOR SUPPORT!
I am trying now for the first time to subsidize myself with your support, through your purchases of my albums and through your donations. If I can work even a day less a week, I am able to increase the amount of time and energy I put into my music. I’ll be writing and producing music no matter what, because I need to, but your support will significantly increase the impact and presence of my songs.
Since 2007 I have worked full-time in the construction trades, which has been good to me, but it also ended up being my least productive period as an artist. In those years, when I managed to book a show or tour, many friends and strangers told me that my voice is needed, that I should be “out there singing”, that my songs are important to many people and movements fighting for positive change in the world.
I finally decided to listen to them, and with that responsibility in mind, I have the goal of spreading my music beyond where it has been for years, to reach new audiences and increase my capacity as a culture-shifter. In the last 8 months I have played over 100 shows in 15 countries! I have done this with the help of CD sales, working when I’m home, and through the support of friends.
If you share that vision with me and you are in a position to give anything, please do! Either way, thanks for your support, it means a lot!
Your support will allow me to produce albums faster and to endeavor upon new projects, including:
• More tours, especially to new towns, cities, and countries
• Putting my CDs into small record shops, book stores, radio stations, & social movement centers.
• Getting my songs translated into various languages
• Teaming up with radical film makers to produce a few music videos for the internet
• Releasing a song book with chords and lyrics
